Scrap Mom of 2

Scrap Mom of 2 has been on Etsy for 2 years now. Carol resides in Mokena, Illinois, which is southwest of Chicago. What a wonderful handmade card shop!! I admire anyone who has the imagination to make cards. A friend introduced me to this art form, unfortunately I just don't have Carol's talent or imagination! She also has a wonderful BLOG that is updated on a regular basis. Please check out Carol's amazing cards and blog!!

How did you decide on your shop name?
I probably should have come up with a different name for my shop, but I’m known as “ScrapMomOf2” on many message boards, so when I registered with Etsy as a buyer in 2007, I used that name. I didn’t open my shop until June 2009; however, it works for my shop too. I’m a scrapper, and I’m a mom to two wonderful girls!

When did you start crafting? What is your favorite creative outlet?
I’ve been crafting ever since I was little. I’ve always loved to create. When I discovered scrapbooking, I really discovered my passion. I love paper! I love to create with all kinds of beautiful papers! Whether I’m making scrapbook pages, creating a one-of-a-kind card, creating a mini book, or altering an item . . . I just LOVE paper!

Are there other crafts you would like to try?
I would love to knit or crochet, but that would take away time from my paper crafting!

What or who inspires you?
I see inspiration everywhere! I love cool color combinations. I love the look at new items in Target in the housewares area. They always have wonderful pillows, plates, etc. My girls and my husband (and also our wonderful dog) inspire me on a daily basis! Nature inspires me too!

Do you have a day job?
Yes! I am the CEO of our home! It’s a 24/7 kind of job!

What is the item in your shop you enjoyed making the most and why?
I really cannot pick a favorite. I enjoy making each and every card. I come up with a concept, and then just go with it. I love adding little details that will make the card recipient smile!
